Ultra-Compact, High Range-Resolution LADAR for the Individual Soldier
Agency / Branch:
DOD / DARPA
Using ASC's current 128 x 128 3-D imaging system, off-the-shelf optics and in-house compact laser designs a demonstration LS3DIS will be configured and tested. Practical issues will be addressed, and data will be used to tune a system performance model. System trade studies will be made using this model. The LS3DIS ReadOut Integrated Circuit will be a 320 x 320 to 400 x 400 unit cell array and the associated unit cell will be designed, simulated and laid out in Phase I.
In Phase II a full-scale or nearly full-scale ROIC will be fabricated and this ROIC, together with the Phase I system analysis, will be the basis for fabrication and testing of a LS3DIS compact system for delivery to DARPA.
